The 3rd JSRR Symposium -

Ideotype of Root System in Rice

- finished -

1995年8月22日に福井県立大学にて、第2回アジア作物学会議の ミニ・シンポジウムのひとつとして、
第3回 JSRRシンポジウム イネ根系の理想型




Rice is one of the most important crop in the world. The concept of shoot ideotype in rice has partly been successful to use for breeding high-yielding cultivars. Can the ideotype of root system, on the other hand, contribute for yield? The purpose of the symposium is provide a forum for accelerating our understanding of rice root system. Invited speakers will review important information about structure and function of root system with reference to genetic and ecological aspects, point out key deficiencies in our knowledge, and suggest view- points leading us to new perspective.

Craig A. Beyrouty:
University of Arkansas, USA
Soil chemist, crop ecologist. Studies environmental and management influences on root growth and nutrient uptake of field grown crops. Root dynamics of lowland irrigated rice is the present research topic.

Jiro Harada:
Saga University, Japan
Crop botanist and ecologist. Role of root systems for the growth and yield of rice plants is one of main interests. How to control the development of root systems is present research topic.

Jin Chul Shin:
National Crop Experimental Station, Korea
Crop physiologist, modeller. Experience of rice field experiments for 16 years. Interesting present topic is the influence of rooting pattern on seedling establishment in direct seeded rice.

Len J. Wade:
International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), Philippines
Agronomist/crop physiologist. 22 years experience in rainfed agricultural research. Interests include root traits for drought resistance, GxE interaction and selection, nutrient x water interaction, establishment and seedling vigour, and crop simulation and risk analysis.
